Woman claims spouse sent 'triple talaq' for not giving dowry

Posted April 18, 2017

Though it would have no legal standing, the AIMPLB feels the fear of social isolation would serve as a deterrent for men misusing triple talaq. He said our Muslim sisters should also get justice.

Attacking the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on its directive on triple talaq, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) today alleged that it was not ready to give equal rights to women as it continued to treat them as "objects".

Subjecting these people to social boycott would serve as a deterrence, the Board said.

Abbas said many Muslim countries have already put an end to the practice as it is directly linked to the lives of Muslim women.

"We have received 3.50 crore forms in favour of Shariyat and triple talaq from Muslim women in the country and the number of women against these are very less", chief organizer of the AIMPLB's women wing Asma Zohra said while addressing a gathering of around 20,000 women at a workshop in Eidgah on April 9.

The board, which deals with the Muslim personal laws in India, issued an eight-point code of conduct to prevent "misuse" of the practice and other Islamic laws (Sharia) on Sunday.

Amid intense pressure from rights groups, Muslim women and right-wing political parties, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board has backtracked from its previous stance of standing strong by the Islamic practice of triple talaq.

Reacting sharply, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) termed Adityanath's remark as "jaahilaanaa" (foolish).

On Adityanath's statement, AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani said, "I don't know how to react to the jaahilaanaa (foolish) statement".

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi today said practice of triple talaq should not be allowed as women have as much right as men and can not be treated on a lower pedestal. He is linking talaq with a greater issue - the disrobing of Draupadi.

Interestingly, some renowned Hanafi scholars have also ruled against concurrent or triple talaq.

Mumbai-based Ibrahim Khan sent the message with "triple talaq" to his wife Afrin on March 27, after her family members refused to give him Rs two lakh as dowry, they said. "Giving triple talaq in one go to a woman is a sin, but it can not be equated to disrobing (of Draupadi)", he said.
